Hello--I was given a CoverPro 1000CP and love what it does that I've seen so far. But the thread breaks about every 8 inches! I was wondering if I have bad feeders or the wrong thread?

So far mine has taken everything I have thrown at it. Have you checked all the usual suspects? Thread antennae fully extended, thread not looped around somewhere it shouldn't be, needle in the right way?

Hi there - there's a dedicated Coverpro thread on these boards. I imagine if you search under the machines section it should come up. It was created by Vonnevo and there's masses of information which should help you and people to answer questions. Perhaps do a search and it will come up.

Mine takes everything that I have tried. I tend to use mettler or gutterman and variegated cottons. Which thread is breaking?

Yeah, mine never breaks either. And I'm ashamed of how I treat this CP1000--rarely change the needles or clean it. And, wow, it just keeps chugging along. It seems to go over everything.

From the very long thread where CoverPro users post, Nancy2001 has compiled a four part document, detailing tips and techniques for the CP.
See the link at the beginning of the thread or in this category on PR.

Re your threads breaking:
It is possible that they are wrapped twice, around the silver coloured thread guide near the tension disk.
Ask me how I know ??

If this is not the problem, it does sound as though the threads are either not feeding off the spools and getting caught up under the spool or along the thread path to the needle. Once you free them, they feed for a few inches til they get caught again.

Like other owners who have posted, I use all types of thread.
When I have a problem, it is usually my own user error.
A CS machine has a slight learning curve and then it is plain sailing.
I hope you find the source of the problem and continue to enjoy your machine.
